Computer Engineering Graduate Program

The 30-hour program is intended for students that want to gain knowledge deeper than that provided at the bachelor’s degree level and sufficient for designing and implementing state-of the-art systems in industrial research and development positions. The program is also appropriate for students contemplating future doctoral study and desiring to gain experience in research. Graduates may work under the direction of doctoral scientists and engineers in high tech lab settings assisting in developing innovative products and systems that require strong foundational knowledge in the underlying sciences and the ability to synthesize and analyze engineering principles as they relate to the development of new computer engineering technology.

The area courses in the graduate Computer Engineering program are partitioned into 5 CEN areas of study. These courses are referred to as the Computer Engineering Area Courses or CEN Area Courses. The following lists the 5 CEN areas:

  1. Autonomous Systems & Robotics (ASR)
  2. Communication and Networks (CN)
  3. Distributed, Dependable and Secure Systems (DDSS)
  4. Multimedia and Signal Processing (MSP)
